Not exactly Storm Panic ’07, so far


A camera-wielding WSB’er headed out to look for signs of storm trouble — and returned with the photo you see above. If there’s anything more dramatic happening around WS, we haven’t seen or heard about it yet. We went down to Beach Drive south of Alki Point, where the tv reporters have been trying their hardest this midday to look windblown, but it wasn’t much different from the conditions we captured on video yesterday afternoon. Nonetheless, we won’t get complacent yet, as the National Weather Service’s High Wind Warning remains up till 4 pm. Here are a couple links we mentioned earlier, repeated by popular demand: City update on power outages here; current Alki Point windspeed here. 2:15 PM ADDENDUM: Traffic notes – there’s a Seahawks Monday Night Football game tonight, so beware if you have to drive through downtown/Sodo (at least the traffic is reduced with many people being off work/school today); also, traffic at the Fauntleroy ferry terminal might be heavier today because the Bremerton-Seattle run is down to one boat.

    Yeah – by the time I got out to bring in the containers our garbage and yardwaste were half-way down the block. Seems like all the windstorms happen on a garbage day around here. Thank-goodness it wasn’t a recycling day.

    Monday night football caused its usual gridlock. Took about 2 hrs for the 21 bus to get from Virginia/Lenora to Arbor heights last night. Ugh.

Sorry, comment time is over.
